Flanders Valley Golf Club - Red/Gold Course
Flanders Valley Golf Course boasts two championship courses that sprawl across the rolling countryside of Morris County. The facility is considered one of the best public golf courses in New Jersey and has even been ranked as one of the top 75 public courses in the country. The Red-to-Gold Course has a hillier terrain than the other course, White-to-Blue, which has a more traditional design. It is the more challenging of the two courses with mature trees scattered throughout and uneven lies provided by the elevation changes, which also offer scenic views of the idyllic surroundings. The Red-to-Gold's seventh hole is the most difficult of all the 36 holes at Flanders. This tricky par 4 has trees flanking both sides and it is also subject to the prevailing winds.
|White (W)||73||6429 yards||78.1||143|
|Red (W)||73||5540 yards||73.1||130|
Wound up finding a tee time after getting cancelled by another course. The weather was ideal. It was a nice sunny day with very little wind. For this time of year it did seam perfect. The course was in good shape with the fairways and greens rolling alright. I've played here a number of times and usually enjoyed the course. With the weather, they did switch us up playing red and white with blue used to pick up any overflow to try and keep things moving and gold was closed. Removing the trees around the course has helped it dry out quicker so that was a good thing. The deal prices from the golf booking sites make it a worthwhile play. Just make sure the cart is included as flanders tends to be one of the few that offers a lot of walking prices.
Very good golf course......interesting holes...... nice change in land features......challenging greens
Very helpful staff.... especially for newcomers.
What happened to this place
Used to be worth the 30 minute drive. Why has it gone downhill ?
It’s not horrible but nowhere near as good. Not maintained the same way. Not worth going out of your way to play it.

The greens were in a great condition. Some of the pin placements were really tough, I saw balls rolling back after missing a cup. May want to add more sand to the bunkers. I’m ok with it as I know how the hit on thin sand but some people were frustrated. Overall, well maintained tricky course that I would be happy to go back.
Thanks for your 4 star review. We're glad that you enjoyed your first round out with us and hope to see you back again soon.
Have good time with friends on this course.
Well maintained golf course, I will be back this course again.

Course Needs Improvement
I've been playing Flanders for many years now. Over the past 5 years or so the course has slowly slipped from a premier facility to average at best. Like to play the white to blue course. You notice on the first hole that the fairway is sunken in from past under ground work. Causes many sunken/uneven lies. Drainage needs work as well. Tee boxes, fairways and rough need work. Greens and sand traps are in great shape. Still a good place to play but investments needed in restoration of tee boxes, fairways and rough before the ratings continue to slip.
Thank you for your honest feedback and review. We take it seriously and are working every day to improve our course conditions. If you'd like to continue this conversation with us on how we can better your experience next time, please email us at email@example.com

Great layout. Friendly staff
Beautiful course, great layout,, friendly staff. The only downside is the sandtraps. They is No sand. Needs a Freshing
Great course with history
I had a great round of golf with one of the employee of the course on his day off. What a great guy! The course is flat for most of the holes. The greens were slow on the day i played. The greens needed cutting and the fairways need some work. Lots of dry stops on the course. Around the greens on the course on the holes away from the club house needs top soil & seed. The tee box needs work. The bunks are filled with mud!! No sand to be found in the bunkers, its mud. The layout of the course is great, the coumpany was great, but the upkeep of the course is lacking. I hope they are planning to work on the upkeep off the course in the near future.
Ehhh, as a county course not that impressed.
Unfortunately the day I played there the greens on the white and blue courses had just been top dressed with sand, and yet we were still charged the full greens fees for our round. There are many browned out areas of the rough on every hole. There are dirt ruts all over the course as well. And the bunkers need a lot of tender loving care. Otherwise its unfortunately a less than memorable county golf course. Too bad, enjoyed this place so much in my 20's.
Everyone was nice from cart staff, pro shop, stater & bartender. Course was in great shape. Some fairways a little brown but just fine. A little pricey for non county residents but my three friends were locals and a great value for that price.
Very Nice Public Course
I enjoyed playing the blue-white course with my father. The staff was friendly and we were even able to get out a few minutes before our tee time. The greens were aerated and sandy, which is the only thing keeping this course from a 5* rating in my book. I'm sure as the season progresses, though, that the greens will be in better condition.
